Georgian’s men’s rugby team enters this weekend with something to prove.
First year head coach John Daggett had his team firing out of the gate to start the season, earning two victories over Sheridan and coming away with a draw against Conestoga.
The previously undefeated Grizzlies ran into the very strong Humber Hawks team last week handing Georgian there first defeat of the season with a 116-0 loss. The Hawks have scored over one-hundred points in each of their four games so far this season.
Still for Coach Daggett, he takes little comfort in Humber’s early dominance in the standings.
“We are trying to make a statement this week (vs. Mohawk),” said Daggett. “We are not that team that played against Humber.”
The Grizzlies still find themselves in good position sitting in 2nd place in the west division standings with two games remaining and can control their fate heading into the playoffs.
Georgian will travel to Mohawk Saturday afternoon in an important game for both teams kicking off at 1pm. The Grizzlies will then wrap up the round robin schedule Sunday, October 21st when they travel to Conestoga.
After making some adjustments, the team refocused in preparation for the trip to Mohawk.
“We had a good hard week of practice, which we needed. We will be ready for Saturday.”
